The cultivation of reflective practice has become a commonly accepted goal of theological education. However, theological educators must face the challenge of teaching and assessing reflective practice. Hypothesizing that this concern is best addressed in community, the authors of this article devised a collaborative action-research project using Thomas Groome's "shared Christian praxis" model. They describe the ways in which they have, over the course of the project, modified their pedagogy to improve their students' reflection on practice.
